Malou Berg ”RESTFUL
– Healing music. Songs for a peaceful heart

Restful is a collection of the most beautiful songs from Malou Berg’s previous albums Hoya, Omine, AmaOna, Alignment, Breathe Out and Ma Yema, plus a bonus track “Anowa” from her forthcoming album in 2019.

Malou says about ”Restful”: ”I chose songs that give a continuous feeling of music that blends together. Songs that help you find a place of peace in the midst of the hustle and buzz of everyday life. Christmas is a time of sharing love and friendship with those we hold dear. But it is also a time for reflection and giving ourselves time towind down and celebrate our inner peace and joy. I hope that Restful can be such an oasis for everyone to find comfort in.”

The songs on the album Restful all reflect the traditional sounds that we associate with Christmas – strings, harp, bells and percussion, but also trumpets and didgeridoo. In the songs Malou adds her wonderful voice and the lyrics come from her own imaginary world language – featured in her previous releases.

Release date November 16, 2018.
